About COBRA RES 1.9

"On the 25th June 2015 the COBRA Committee held its first meeting in response to refugees and migrants attempting to enter Britain via Calais.

This latest response by COBRA RES binds together previously unpublished flash fiction short stories and texts made in direct response to the ‘Calais Crisis’ COBRA Committee meetings, and the overall crisis faced by hundreds and thousands of refugees currently moving towards and across Europe.

As a counter-narrative to the COBRA Committee, the stories and experimental texts assembled here do not offer sound bites or sermons. Instead, they present momentary tales amid the confusion and chaos that infest emergency events, writing out lost stories and loose notes on the border between fact and fiction.
